She believes that “families make up neighbourhoods because they are the foundation stone of communities”. Annie describes herself as Black British and her husband is of mixed race, so they are not the stereotype of ‘traditional’ East Enders. Annie felt very lucky in her marriage: “We had Vicky when Neil and I were 19, just a pair of kids. We are still together, it’s worked out lovely”. But Annie’s husband wanted to move and this created tension. Annie did not want to “because there are people here who care, and people who are working to make the community better, like his mum.
I like the open area at the back, we’d’ve moved otherwise”. The family had fought to protect their open space:“We had a battle to keep the green behind our house but we have. The kids like it – the wildlife. We get foxes and bats”. The couple bought their house from the council. Peter thought Right-to-Buy helped: “It takes the strain off the council and off ratepayers.

Sometimes I think the privileged areas are worse off. I just hope [our children] don’t get involved”. Peter added: “I hope they won’t be un-enterprising and that they take opportunities and that they will have a good life, that’s all”.
